Backyards are the best for practicing your photography.
One of the best ways I have found to practice your photography in your backyard is by taking photos of birds. These pretty bluebirds just loved my bird feeder.
If you will just be patient and feed them they will come in droves. Here a red breasted wood pecker setting on a limb above my head. He is getting ready to go down to my feeder.

So take your camera and just go outside. You will be amazed at what you will find.
Have a wonderful day!
